Avoid Inverted Poses and Back Bends

During pregnancy, you should avoid inverted poses, such as Shoulderstand. However, you can lie on the floor with the soles of your feet against a wall or your calves resting on a chair, provided you are not lying on your back for an extended period of time.

You should also avoid back bends during pregnancy. Because of the extra weight you carry on the front of your body when you are pregnant, these poses put additional pressure on your spine and lower back and can lead to back injury.

Yoga can be a great source of exercise, relaxation and fun for children. In fact, yoga is taught in many elementary schools in the United States. Yoga is especially beneficial for hyperactive children or children with Attention Deficit Disorder.

Finding a yoga class in your area that is designed for children may be difficult, but you should be able to find many books and videos about yoga for children. Remember that a yoga practice can only hold a child's attention for a limited amount of time. Aim for a 15 to 20 minute practice for children in preschool, a 20 to 30 minute practice for elementary school children and 30 minutes or more for preteens. Try to include at least a short period of relaxation at the end of each practice.
